WASHINGTON, Dec. 2.-()-The
leaders of Congress, and rank and
file as well, roared back an emphatic
"no" today to the new British and
French pleas for postponement of the
Dec. 15 war-debt payments.
With the door to immediate debt
relief slammed shut on Capitol Hill,
a hint came from the White House
that formal answers may not be for-
warded by this government in re-
sponse to the European arguments
for help.
Leaving the regular Cabinet
meeting, Secretary of State Stimson
told newspapermen "it may not be
necessary to reply" to the communi-
No Change iii Congress
Speaker John N. Garner, for the
House, and Senator James E. Wat-
son, 'of Indiana, the Republican
leader, for the Senate, reported that
the French and British notes had
produced no change of sentiment in
Congress and that there was no pros-
pect there of sanction for the Dec. 15
Mingled in the varied and em-
phatic declarations from Capitol Hill
were fresh demands that Europe take
steps for disarmament and improve-
ment of tra┬░ relations before asking
debt relief.
Chairman William E. Borah, of the
Senate Foreign Relations Committee,
who has advocated a world confer-
ence on disarmament, debts repara-
tions and economics, asserted that
the war debts owed this coluntri was
only one cause of the world's troubles.
"It is unfair to ask the American
taxpayers to contribute their part for
the removal of these causes and leave
behind causes which will make their
contributions wholly ineffective," Bo-
rah said.
French Appeal for Relief
The French note, which arrived
late last night, contended that the
appeal for debt relief was but a na-
tural sequel to President Hoover's
one-year moratorium. It threatened
French rejection of the Lausanne
agreement on reparations and argued
that this agreement was an out-
growth of the meeting a year ago
between President Hoover and Pierre
Laval, then French premier.
Tonight the issue again seemed
to be up to the European debtors-
either to pay or default on Dec. 15.
500 Persons

Prom At Union
Kearns, McHenry Lead
Grand March To Music
Of HemryTheis' Band

More than 250 couples attended the
annual Soph Prom held last night in
the ballroom of the Union. Lewis
Kearns, '35, of Flint, and Catherine
McHenry, '34, of South Bend, Ind.,
led the grand march which began
shortly after midnight.
Reports that the dance had failed
financially were denied last night by
members of the committee. It was
said, however, that only a heavy last-
day sale had enabled the sponsors
to meet the expenses entailed in the
selection of an orchestra and other
Novel favors, which consisted of
programs in book form, enclosed in
metal coverings, were presented to
the dancers. A picture of the Union
served as the design for the cover,
while the fly-leaf contained the
Union coat-of-arms.
Music for the Prom was provided
by Henry Theis and his radio band,
selected in a nationwide poll as the
best orchestra on the air. Decora-
tions were designed to carry out the
Christmas spirit, with evergreens1

Europe's war debts to America continue to occupy the statesmen of every nation concerned. To Ramsay
MacDonald (upper right) fell the task of preparing a second note by which Great Britain hoped to convince
the United States that postponement of the $95,550,000 payment due Dec. 15 is essential to the economic well-
being of the world. His adviser was Neville Chamberlain (lower right), chancellor of the exchequer. Premier
Herriott of France also prepared a new note for Washington asking postponement of the $20,000,000 payment
from France. President Hoover and Secretary Stimson (lower left) held securely to the position that Europe
has failed to produce facts which justify postponement of the debt payments.

Japs Forcing
Chinese Back
In Manchuria
L a s t Forty-Eight Hours
Have Seen Three Stiff
Battles With 200 Slai'k
TSITSIHAR, Manchur- 'nec. 2.-
()-Japanese forces and Chinese ir-
regulars have fought three stiff
battles in the sub-zero weather of
northwest Manchuria within the last
48 hours, and at least 200 soldiers
were slain in the encounters.
This was revealed today in terse
communiques from advancing Jap-
anese troops to their headquarters
Despite apparently stiff opposition
the Japanese have advanced north-
westward along the Chinese Eastern
railway toward the Soviet border. To-
day their main force of several thou-
sand troops was consolidating its po-
sition at Chalantun, 75 miles north-
West of Tsitsihar.
The battles were fought in the
streets and just outside that railway
town. The Japanese said they count-
ed 200 Chinese bodies on the snow-
covered plain after the engagement.
Therewas no mention of Japanese
casualties. Previously it had been
indicated they were light.
When the Japanese took Chalan-
tun, they had advanced half way to
the famous Khinganemountain cn-
try from Tsitsihar. The first s
the railway reaches in these moun-
tains from the south is Shedyn pass,
equidistant from Tsitsihar and Man-
:huli, on the Soviet border.
It is at Manchuli that the Chinese
rebel general, Su Ping-Wen, is sta-
tioned with several thousand troops,
rnd 183 Japanese hostages. Twenty-
two of these are women and chil-
Although the Japanese offensive
originally was expected to be a cam-
paign to wipe out Gen. Su, the final
objective has not been announced.
The Japanese went into the winter
campaign after Gen. Su had defied
them to come and get him.

Army, Navy Meet
In Annual Contest
At Franklin Field
Encamped tonight on the outskirts
of the old battleground, the football
forces of the United States military
and naval academies will bring their
seasons to a climax tomorrow on
Franklin Field before a sell-out
crowd of 78,000 in a setting fully
reminiscent of this ancient rivalry's
most colorful and prosperous times.I
With assurances that their back-I
field ace, "Pick" Vidal, would be in
condition to play most of the game,
Army ruled an 8 to 5 favorite, de-
spite the battering the soldiers re-
ceived at the hands of Notre Dame
last Saturday and the fact that at
least two regulars will not be in the
starting lineup. Navy's hopes, based
mainly on her team's strong defense,
nevertheless were higher than in
years in anticipation of achieving
victory for the first time since 1921.
Although the Army and Navy have
played for the last two years in spe-
cial charity games, this is the first
contest under the new agreement,
ending their five-year-old break in
relations. As a consequence, the
cadets and midshipmen, with their
uniformed as well as civilian fol-
lowers, welcome this official resump-
tion of rivalry on Franklin Field,
where all but two of their games
were played from 1899 to 1914.

Mussolini Tells
Navy To Build
New Cruisers
ROME, Dec. 2--AP)-Premier Mus-
solini today ordered the Navy De-
partment to lay down two light
cruisers of 6,742 tons and two tor-
pedo boats of 615 tons. Their con-
struction is a part of the 1931-1932
program which was suspended under
proposals of a year's holiday made at
the Geneva Conference by Dino
Grandi, then minister of foreign af-
The new cruisers were the focal
point of a heated newspaper con-
troversy when British experts con-
lished the statement that Italy was
laying down a "secret" Navy.
To this allegation Italian experts
replied that the ships were merely
"vessels still on paper" because of
the Grandi holiday. Several month;
ago Italian naval experts character-
ized as "ridiculous" reports publish-
ed in London that Italy was build-
ing a larger Navy in secret.

In defeating the request. Four Dem-
ocrats and two Republicans voted to
give authority.
Long Closed Session
The vote came after a long session
'ehind closed doors in which vir-
tually all phases of the prohibition
:uestion were discussed.
The group was divided on most of
Sumners, who did not vote, said
that the committee did not pass on
the merits of the resolution but on
the manner of procedure.
At the outset, Rep. M. C. Harver,
Georgia Democrat, raised the ques-
tion of authority for the committee
to meet officially. It was decided by
Sumners that the action taken would
be informal but that he would be
guided by it.
Cinema League
Not Communist,
Executive Says
Flouts Charges Made In
Letter To The Daily;
Affiliations Are Denied
Charges that the Art Cinema
League is definitely Communistic,
and that it serves as an "arm" of
she National Student League, were
rigorously denied last night by Phil-
p Seidel, Grad., member of the ex-
'cutive committee of the League.
The allegations refuted by Seidel
ere contained in a letter signed by
Iwo students, delivered to the Daily
'"The Art Cinema League is a stu-
dent-faculty organization which pro-
poses to work actively toward rais-
ing the culture level of the campus,"
Seidel said. "We propose to do that
at first through the medium of the
cinema, since that is the easiest
method to handle financially. With
surplus funds accumulated thereby
we intend to subsidize and bring here
other cultural mediums such as the
New York - Theatre Guild and other
outstanding theatrical groups. Prom-
inent writers will also be brought

After Moment Of Con centration

Fancy Gas Station Is Latest
Addition ToUniversity Campus
The latest addition to the campussuch small business enterprises across

of the University of Michigan-the
Harvard of the West-is the new,
shiny, modern, service station being
erected on the corner of State and
Jefferson streets right across from
Angell Hall and beside the dairy

The gas station will be completed
soon at an approximate cost of $15,-
According to Shirley W. Smith, sec-
retary of the University, the land
does not belong to the University and
the administration has no control


from the main buildings of the Uni-
versity of Michigan campus. The

Efrem Zimbalist, violinist who will
play here on Dec. 12 as the fourth
presentation of the Choral Union
Concert Series, is said to have an un-
canny ability to play almost any in-
strument that comes into his hands.
No one, according to the widely cir-
culated story, has ever shown him a
musical instrument that, after a mo-
ment of concentrated examination,
he has not been able to play.
In connection with this touted
ability of his, there is a yarn that
appears almost unbelievable. It con-
cerns a time when, as a youth of 18,
he came up before the faculty of the
Petrograd Conservatory for his final
examination. He learned, just before
he entered the sanctum of the iurv.

incident. He sat down, however, got
'is breath, played. When he was
finished, he was instructed to play
'he whole thing overdagain-this
time for memory. He did so. After
a moment of silence, the judges
broke unanimously into applause-
an unheard-of demonstration for
that particular body.
The old time musician, says Mr.
Zimbalist, has long since passed from
the concert stage. He insists that
long hair, bad manners, and eccen-
tric dress are no longer part of the
musical artist's stock paraphernalia.
"Violinists of fiction undoubtedly
had a basis in fact," he explains,
"but fact has grown faster than fic-
tion and I don't believe you will find
many of this variety on the cnneert
